Tomorrow is New Year’s Eve and we are heading down to the cottage for our annual New Year’s Family bash..
I was thinking this morning how much has happened or changed in the past year…
This time last year I was cursing Evan’s father for being a loser and not being involved in his son’s life…he has done a big turn around and has been very involved with Evan
I have had a couple of “relationships” in the past year…I use the term relationship very loosely. A few people have mentioned to me that 2012 will be my year. Though at times I think it would be nice to not the the odd wheel with all the couples around me, and to have someone to spend time with, I also enjoy my independence and doing things how and when I want to do things. I sometimes wonder if I will ever find that “one” who can put up with my finickiness. Will I find someone that I won’t get bored with after two months?? I’m not look for a pity party here, just voicing the thoughts I sometimes have.
In the past year I have was laid off from IPC, where I worked for 11 years. It was hard to take at first. I was devastated. I felt like I was handed divorce papers. Some of the people at IPC I have known for 11 years. We had seen each other through lots of ups and downs. I picked my head up though, let my fingers do the walking on Monster.com among other sites and was fortunate to find a job within a month. UNfortunately it was NOT the job for me as I soon found out, but thanks to the grace of god and prayers, I received a phone call from Franklin Sports, where I now work, offering me a customer service job. I hopped right on that. It’s local, the people are all very nice. There is very little stress and drama. I love it!
As you all know we went to Disney this year. what an AMAZING trip! It rained for a couple of days but we still had such a great time!! Surprising Evan was the best! I hope it will be something he remembers for the rest of his life. I still can’t believe that I was able to keep it a secret for 8 months!!! It was such a tremendous feeling to be able to take my son to Disney, all on my own!!
I started attending church regularly and I feel great about it. Evan has been involved in the youth group at the church as well and he loves it. I started going with my friend Di and I have met some really wonderful people! I look forward to going every Sunday. I was sad to miss this weeks service, as it was on Christmas Eve and I had the Heal Christmas to attend. I will also miss this weeks service as I will be down the cape for New Year’s festivities. We’ll be back on the 8th though! Can’t wait!
Last February I joined WW with a bunch of ladies from work and I lost almost all of the weight I put on after quitting smoking. Unfortunately after being laid off I couldn’t afford WW and I wasn’t being strict with myself and put on at least half the weight that I lost. Julie and I have joined together though and I’m back on the losing track! Julie is doing AWESOME!! I haven’t been as strict as I could be, after the new year I will crack down and start losing!! I WILL be a Yummy Mummy this summer!!
I have reconnected with some old friends this year and made some new friends, as well as cut ties with those friends who should not really be categorized as “friends”
This year I hope to strengthen my relationships with all of my friends and family. I am so blessed to have such wonderful people in my life and I hope that they know how much I appreciate each and every one!
I wish everyone a Happy & Healthy New Year!!!!
Until next year….
